The Cincinnati Chapter gathered at the Golden Lamb Restaurant in Lebanon, Ohio for an Old Fashioned Sunday Dinner of Fried Chicken or Roasted Turkey with Mashed Potatoes & Gravy.
The gathering brought 48 members of the chapter with guests that included at least 3 local DAR Chapters: John Reily, Clough Valley and Nathaniel Sackett Chapters of the DAR. The event was held in the President’s Dinning Room which was most appropriate considering the presentation made by our guest speaker, Joyce Lovins Browning.
Ms. Browning portrayed Julia Boggs Dent Grant, the wife of President Ulysses Simpson Grant, our 18th President of the United States. Her portrayal was extremely well done, capturing her life from the time she was a little girl on a Missouri Plantation through her marriage, the Civil War and the final passing of President grant from throat cancer.
